    hi, my first post on the forum I'm currently installing a wfp system in my van! Reading the threads on here have been a great help sure iv learnt a great lot so thanks too all. But what else do you keep in the van to help i.e. chems,type of cloths, spares parts things like that? i like to do a job right and even tho i have no experience of window cleaning I'm sure ill get it right (hopefully lol) i was a roof slate and tiler since i left school for 12 years but snapped my ACL in my knee 1 1/2 years ago and after a reconstruction and a long hard of rehabilitation iv decided in a new occupation thats easy on my knee but still outdoors and physical enough too keep me happy! any useful info for a newbie is all welcome cheers

    I'm guessing you are not so keen on ladders now?

    I snapped my cruciate ligament playing footy. I walked off the pitch and drove myself to the hospital. They operated the next day. No stretcher for Tuffers :thumbsdown:

    As for what you need in your van; tools like pliers, screwdrivers, a knife, things like that really. Always have spare parts of things that may break like connectors.

    No but is funny to hear roofers turn to window cleaning instead as they can make a killing doing roofs surely? :D
